Scott And Carol Present - Cheetah Hunt Construction

We had the opportunity to visit Busch Gardens Africa recently to check out the construction of their newest roller coaster, Cheetah Hunt!

Here's an elevated view of the area between the Sky ride station and the old Clydesdale barn.

Here you can see the concrete walls that will surround the coaster track.

Here's a closer look.

This sandbox is so large you have to have heavy equipment to play in it.

The old Sky ride station is being renovated and will soon include a store for Cheetah Hunt merchandise. I hope they have a lapel pin.

Here's another angle of the station, the Skyride is not operational during the construction.

From this view it looks like the ride is going to be very interesting.

There are already a lot of footers, which are on top of a concrete pad.

These two shots show how they are re-utilizing the water part of Rhino Rally.  Thanks to Jill and the Busch Gardens Africa staff. We're looking forward to hunting like a Cheetah in 2011.
